New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was booed by fans at a New York Mets baseball game on Tuesday night, after catching a foul ball in the stands.
Christie was watching the Mets play a home game against the St. Louis Cardinals when he made the catch. He gave the ball to a kid nearby, but that failed to stop the booing.
“Nice to see him get from the beach here to the ballpark,” Cardinals’ play-by-play announcer Dan McLaughlin said, according NJ.com, referencing Christie’s visit earlier this month to a state beach that he had closed to the public in the midst of a government shutdown in New Jersey. Photos captured the Governor sitting with friends and family members on an otherwise deserted beach during the 4th of July holiday weekend.
